The last few weekends have just been awesome. Lots of Family Fun!
Here’s Olive at the Denver Mineral Show.
I studied mineralogy in school, so HAD to go to this event. We saw fossils and meteorites bought lots of beads to make jewelry. I’ve been studying the meanings and metaphysical properties of stones, and have collected a few that sounded interesting.
Moldavite, tiger’s eye, and rutilated quartz are some that I’ve recently gathered.
Here the girls and I are at the Denver Art Museum. They have lots of art activities for the kids to do while there.
This exhibit is interactive. The little dudes were drawn by a 3-year-old, and pressing various dials and sliding sliders make groups of them swirl and merge.

When I first started blogging in the late 1990s, I was hesitant to write very much. Who’d want to read MY thoughts about knitting? Then I started writing about EveRyThing, and in about 2007, I reeled myself back in. (Note the lack of old public archives here!)
Now I’m wishing I’d blogged more when the girls were babies. I found some cute videos of them on a hard drive, and we’ve been watching them. They really love seeing themselves as babies.
The pic in this post are from an average weeknight, on which we went to a very average Mexican restaurant on South Broadway. (All are from the iPhone, slightly edited.)
It’s the average, normal days that slip by unnoticed, so quickly. Here are some particularly uneventful moments from that dinner…
Mazie really wanted her photo taken with these parrots:

Can you tell how proud I am of her for figuring out the camera?
I love long weekends. Just enough time to do the usual weekend stuff like grocery-getting and laundry, with a whole day left to hang with the wee peeps. We had a pretty fantastic day at the park, even with some mean kid throwing sand. I’m learning how to turn everything into a lesson…being kind is cool. Throwing stuff at other kids isn’t.
So we set up the tent in the back yard again.
The girls took a lot of pictures.
It rained on us a little bit.
The sprinklers came on at 3 am.
And we had a total BLAST!!
My baby started school today! Pre-K!
Olive thought she was going too.
Great big school, little tiny girl.
